Thanks for your response, R Pal. Nice to have someone respond who didn't just condescendingly say, "No, what you say happened didn't really happen." I don't participate in forums/chats/comments enough ever to get used to the trolls....

I haven't been able to find out an answer to my question, but I appreciate your response. Guess I'll never find out why things changed so abruptly a couple of weeks ago; my search page is still unresponsive after all those months of consistent helpfulness. But it's not a huge problem, and I will go on appreciating the great resource that is Internet Archive.

Thanks again....

Is the problem mentioned by this posting the same issue that you are encountering? Perhaps your question will be answered in that thread.

And think of the trolls as bad comedy writers or the guys that yell things as they drive by. Their gone in a while.

Been tipped off by someone on a Librivox forum that if you Favorite all your recordings on your account, those results are updated at least nearly daily, just like the Search results page USED to be. I've tried it. It's cumbersome, and not as nice as the simple Search check was before six weeks ago, but doable. Must be some monstrous technological reason why, though the items seem to be identical to those you get on the Search page, the view numbers can't be updated the same way, the same way they were daily updated before mid-May. Beyond my expertise.

Thanks to everyone for helping to resolve things as well as they're going to get resolved....

I was clearly wrong about this suggestion, as although the download numbers did correspond with the individual item downloads when I first made the Favorites page they have not moved since, although the indvidual item downloads have increased.

The Internet Archive has had time to put all the improvements into place.

How is it now?

Do you mind posting a link to the Librivox Forum? Audio books have become a strong need for some of my family.

It seems as if the BETA can be almost as good as the original if you jump through four brightly colored and size changing hoops. If only I could see the benefits.

Yes, thank you. I like what I've seen so far.
